Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Peaty, smoky. Grassy. Dune herbs, bonfire. Soot. Lemonade. Not a lotbehind the smoke screen.
Palate: Sweet and smoky. Bog myrtle, lemon drop. Mint and aniseed. Refreshing ifnot extremely aromatic.
Finish: Sweet and smoky.
Comment: A pleasant dram for refreshment but lacks substance for enjoyment.
7.4
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Almost as pale as 20. Light white rum. Still raw and grassy with a little smoke. Mealy but unformed.
Palate: Birch sap wine. There's a decent central sweetness and a likeable fizzy quality but too unripe and edgy for me and, once again, not enough interaction.
Finish: Simple.
Comment: Needs more assertive wood. Should really be further along at this age.
